Stairway to Heaven >>
[Death Wish, 3 kb]27m. A tremendous pitch which requires careful rope work. It is E7 if the good peg on Stairway to Heaven is not clipped. Follow Barracuda to the bush in the main-break (peg above). Traverse 2m right and make one move up before continuing the traverse to a small corner (good half-size Friend in a flake and good peg on Stairway to Heaven to right). Crux moves up rightwards end at a break and a move right into another small corner. Take the wall on right to finish. Lower-off. © ROCKFAX
FA. Pete Gomersall, Duncan Drake 1980. Pete Gomersall puts up one of the UKÕs first E7s, rejecting the use of bolts and in-keeping with the tradition of the approach to free climbing on this wall.
